bramble cottage

has arrived! It is quite lovely and perfect if you are itching for some little spring/summer colors! however, the winter wonderland-style snow this morning seems appropriate since yesterday i was placing Christmas orders for June…

Inspired by a dream of living in a countryside English cottage surrounded by unkept roses and meandering hills…this collection embodies that dream. Pretty flowers, classic plaids, clever dots and pluses…falling in love with it all over again.

precuts look to be shipping today and will be in-store early next week…i’ll get those listed over the next couple days so you can get your order in!

we have yardage of bramble cottage available now…here…and don’t you love how it looks with Finnegan and ALL THE GINGHAMS!

mom just finished piecing Cottage Charm using Finnegan. Cottage Charm is a large quilt that is perfect in soft pastel prints. Finnegan is a glorious older sister to Bramble Cottage. Soft airy prints, pretty Easter-Egg colors and truly delightful prints. Once it is quilted and washed i’ll do a blog post featuring it.

…i know we are about 5 collections behind but hopefully we can kick out a few new projects in the next few weeks…just in time to do a new rearrange for Easter and dad to have rotator cuff surgery…so mom will be home with him…hopefully all caught up and ready to set to work on the new collections that will be arriving.

in between all the piecing and machine quilting we are doing a little painting and trading in our old fence panels for a couple barn doors…all in good time…we have until surgery day to get that done…only about 16 more days!

time to start wrapping things up for the day…a few new bundles have arrived…yummy 30’s! i’ll work on getting those listed and maybe even a post about them this week.

happy tuesday!

autumn feels

good afternoon! morning thunderstorms and a muggy afternoon…we’ve been inside cutting and bundling and reorganizing after our last 2 shows, pulling out pastel pumpkins, pulling out the autumn music and trying to get all the autumn feels. a couple of collections have arrived with more on the way.

Today we have Wonder by katie & birdie paper co…the brown really adds a lot and the combination is scrumptious when paired with some white pumpkins…or spring for an heirloom pumpkin to really complete the autumn pastel look.

Wonder features the prettiest mixture of oatmeal, bubblegum, linen, and breeze with a soft white background. We have cherry-picked our 2 favorite prints…the all-over small leaf and the sort-of dot and mixed them with the coordinating Bella Solids. Packs of 10 prints are available…both fat quarters and half yards along with yardage…check out the wonder collection here.

And…My Redwork Garden…i don’t think there is a shirting print i don’t like. i fell in love with these delightful red-on-cream shirtings when i spied them in the moda book and i knew we needed a few to add to our civil war collection. these are so versatile though they would work with almost any bunny hill collection…or mix in with Christmas prints, French General, 3 Sisters, or your low volume collection. i’m thinking it’s about time i put together a couple more low volume bundles…for sure a Low Volume Christmas.

My Redwork Garden is a collection of red, white, and cream designed by Bunny Hill for Moda. I chose just 4 prints to add to the shop. 4 shirting prints…red on cream. i’ve packaged them up into Pantry Packs: Red Velvet Blondies. We have the pantry packs along with yardage available here.
